Home Visits

Home visits are for the housebound, or for those whose illness itself prevents them from attending the centre. Home visits can only be carried out when the doctor considers the medical condition of the patient makes this necessary. Generally this would be when travel to the centre by car or taxi would endanger the patient’s health.  Adequate parking and a taxi “drop-off” point are available at the centre.

If you think you may need a home visit please try to phone between 8.30 am and 10.30 am where possible.
